Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Over 90% of startup businesses fail.  Why?  While there are a variety of factors that go into this failure rate, it usually involves some combination of innocent incompetence, the lack of a proper business plan and start-up checklist, the failure to properly utilize and comply with legal requirements, a bad core product/idea and the wrong “team” involved.   So how do entrepreneurs and business owners increase their chances for success and get into that elite 10%?

This webinar, presented by a successful entrepreneur and a nationally recognized business attorney, will provide you the SECRETS to starting and operating a successful business, including a 20 step start-up checklist from the initial idea through the actual launch of the business (and beyond).   You will not only be provided insider business tips from successful entrepreneurs themselves, but also the best ways to navigate the frustrating legal and administrative requirements of starting a business.
